We all live really crazy lives. We wake up to that annoying alarm, blink, then we’re saying goodnight to our kids again. With all that’s going on, getting that workout in can become overwhelming so we stop trying. We’re trying to “find” time when we should be “making” time. Time for you to forget about all that craziness and instead, focus on that whiteboard staring back at you. If you find the struggle to be real, try following these 5 tips to never miss another workout again (or even just one):
- Plan your week ahead of time. You probably fill up your free time around your work schedule, appointments, or kids’ sport practices. Why not also plan around your gym schedule too? The easiest way is to plan your gym days for the week on Sunday night and schedule around them. This leads us to tip number two.
- Keep the same schedule. Routine is your friend and if you keep the same schedule for your workouts, it’s easier to remember when not to schedule something else.
- Workout in the morning. Not only does a morning workout leave you energized for the rest of the day, it also lets you get your workout out of the way. Evenings can get busy and the distractions are plentiful.
- Go directly to the gym from work. If you can’t workout in the morning, pack your bag ahead of time and go straight to the gym after work. If you go home before the gym, it’s easier to find something else to do, especially if you’ve had a long day.
- Get enough sleep. Adults normally need 7-8 hours of sleep a night and let’s be honest, you probably stay up later than you should to catch up on your missed TV shows. If you get enough sleep, not only will you be fully rested for the upcoming day, you’ll have enough energy to workout too. A full night’s sleep also helps you recover better and improves your memory.
Often times, prospective members don’t think they can attend regularly because they have kids they can’t leave at home. We understand this and we do let members bring them as long as they can listen well, so definitely keep that in mind if you’re thinking about pulling the trigger on one of our memberships.
We hope this helps. If you have any questions or other helpful tips, let us know!
